Windows service not starting

Specs: Windows XP, 1.6G/1.5G RAM
When I try to start a particular Windows service I get an error that the "service terminated unexpectedly". I have checked the path to the exe, and the parameters for the service several times. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing the service and bouncing the box. The Event Viewer>Application logs show only the same error message.

Does anyone know of a way to get a log file of what is happening?

what is the error message that is in event viewer?

Did you highlight the error message and dounle click it to see what else it may say about the error?

Since you do not say the name of the Service, I suppose it is a secret.

May be a service that depends on another service, that is not running.

The only dependency is WebDav.

I can run the executable from the cmdline without issues, but I prefer to run it via services.
